Best laid plans

Well, the best laid plans of mice and men and all that.  Last nights hobby goal was to get some more of my epic Orks painted, and finish my first Goff Big Mob.  So obviously, the first thing that I did was start painting this.

An epic scale Basilisk I got from an E-bay auction.  Its worth noting the miniature is tiny, and mostly done with simple washes and drybrushing.  Its also been photographed with my phones camera, and so the shots may be (are) a little dodgy.  The weathering at the bottom is a lot less noticeable in the flesh as it were, and will match the terrain that I have in mind (desert set).  It also matches the bases of the orks, which I was supposed to have painted, but failed miserably to do.

And for some eye candy (I hope), the resurrectionist gang for Malifaux that I finished a while ago, and only got around to varnishing recently.

As always, comments and advice welcomed

Battlefleet Gothic

Well, today I was digging through old models and I found my old (small) battlefleet gothic fleet.  It was in a pretty poor condition, with many of the models damaged, and glue broken. (One of the Sword's has been riding around in the car below the handbrake for about 3 years!)  Its a game that I got, painted, bought some models, but never played more than a few test games, so I have no idea if this is a viable fleet or not.

My First Post

Well, I have decided that having a blog may motivate me to get more of my painting backlog sorted out.  My goal is to get projects actually finished, maybe get some more games played this year, and with any luck get some feedback to help me improve my painting.
